    Over sixty Big Ideas for Hepburn Shire Council were articulated from these workshops. Questions asked via the OurSay forum ranged from comments on parking and traffic control, queries of Council’s public accountability and also suggested integrating committees for better management of the Shire’s facilities.

     

    OurSay and Hepburn Shire Council are looking forward to turning your Big Ideas into big actions.
